Please update CMS data. Principal is now Mrs. Southard who tends to imagine her school just as an extended elementary school.

I transferred to CMS in 7th grade and all I can say is that the problem here is overcrowding. Most other things are good, especially the advanced classes, but there are about 30 kids per class, average, and the teachers have a hard time controlling the sheer number of kids in my grade, and blame for ...  Read more

I am an 8th grader at CMS, and it's not been a great experience. A few teachers are great... others arn't. There are very strict rules, none which make me feel safe. I am looking forward to high school next year.
